These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Megan Cortez. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Professional and courteous - offered plenty of space for me to talk and think through my challenges. But always offered reassuring and helpful therapy.

I have been struggling and barely mnging for three yrs now. In a matter of two sessions she had me more calm nlistening to reality a lil better. I was excepting things I could n could not chg. She gv me small task to be able to make progress. Which we all know that when u feel accomplished u feel better. But the reality of the hard truth came w standing up to the situation. I want to thank Megan bc she helped make that a possibility. She kept me from a ledge as some would say.
Sincerely,
Kmerritt
